Hi everyone,

Like many people on here I am STILL awating my NOA2 from the Vermont Service Center... when we first applied the processing date was at 44 days and now its 77 and theres been no word on our case since May! I cant believe this, its taking FOREVER!

Question, this might not be possible but I thought I'd ask just in case. I live in Ontario and one of my friends has recently moved to BC and it got me thinking... could I go and visit her and have my interview in Vancouver instead of Montreal which seems to be really back logged for interviews? I hear Vancouver interview dates are much quicked to get, correct me if I'm wrong though. So ya, can I apply for an interview in Vancouver when I live in Ontario?

Thanks for the help!

You generally get assigned to the consulate or embassy that processes K-1s to where you live. Most countries only have one place that processes K-1s. You can request your case be transfered, but unless you have a good reason, its unlikely to happen.

A long time ago it was possible to get transferred to the Vancouver consulate if there were extenuating circumstances or the beneficiary could prove that they were living in the jurisdiction. Currently it's extremely hard to get approval for a MTL to VAN transfer, since both sides have come down on transfers.

Nini - Vancouver BC, Canada (she's the one who does the forum thing)

Bee - Devon PA, USA (he's the one who gave her the shiny ring)

Getting our sanity tested by bureaucracy since 2007.

Here we go again...

I don't know how long you can "visit" your friend in BC, but if you're not working, and can temporarily move out there and "visit" them, I'd let NVC know you're there and to redirect your application. I know of one Canadian person that did this some time ago. The Canadian was able to move to BC and stay with an Uncle. The NVC was notified he was living there now, and the application was transferred. I'm not suggesting you lie though! It will still be several months for them to forward the information out, and have your package 3 mailed to you, and have you return it, get an interview date, your medical etc. If you want further information on this, you could perhaps message BeBop and RockSteady, I think that's their screen name here for further information. If that's not their name, can someone offer up the right one? :blink:
